HE’S back again and sure to bring an evening full of entertainment as Olympic show jumper, Geoff Billington returns to Portmore Equestrian Centre, Aghalee on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 7pm, in association with Bluegrass Horse Feeds.
Renowned Olympic show jumper, Geoff Billington will be travelling to Portmore Equestrian Centre for a masterclass you don’t want to miss. The evening will be spilt into two themes; the first part will focus on “improving your riding”, with demo riders who will no doubt bear the brunt of Geoff’s witty humour. Geoff will then ride in the second part, “doing it my way”, giving tips and tricks on his riding skills that have brought him such success.
Geoff began riding when he was just nine years of age, after getting his first pony he started his now greatly successful career. At 19, Geoff competed in his first British Team competition in Poland on Joe Pullen’s horse, ‘Talk of the North’. His career began, and his success grew, having now competed in over 50 Nations Cups.
The well-known partnership with ‘It’s Otto’, brought Geoff his success including; sixth individually in Atlanta Olympic Games 1996; team bronze at the European Championships in 1997; team bronze in Manheim 1998; bronze in the World Championships in Rome 1999; sixth in the European Championships at Hickstead and represented Britain at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. ‘It’s Otto’ was awarded the “Outstanding Horse of 1996” and retired at Olympia in 2001.
With such an impressive career, this masterclass will be packed with knowledge for aspiring riders and coaches.

These will be held on January 31, February 1 and 2 at Portmore Equestrian Centre in the Bluegrass Horse Feeds arena.
